U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi rallied with Illinois Democrats Wednesday in Springfield.
She was the keynote speaker at one of the party’s biggest annual meetings — the Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association brunch.
Democrats spent the morning in a packed hotel ballroom celebrating their state legislative accomplishments. Gov. J.B. Pritzker listed them off, including raising the minimum wage, legalizing marijuana, and passing a big infrastructure plan.
Pelosi said she came to “catch the spark” of Illinois.
“As you can see from what the governor presented … a mainstream agenda can be a progressive agenda,” Pelosi said.
